    I have a 1999 Sony 36XBR Wega without the 1080i capability as on the newer models. Is there a line doubler out there that can approximate progressive scan on this box, or do I need to sell this one and start over?

    You'll need to start over; the XBR250/XBR300-series WEGAs do not scan at frequencies required for line-doubling. Besides, line-doubled sets are descending in price; you won't take that much of a hit by selling off your current set.
